G'day all! I'm sorta new to these forums; long-time lurker, first-time poster, all that stuff. My family and I recently moved out of Melbourne, Australia, in to the countryside, in a rather large town called Drouin, in Victoria, Australia. The bishop of our region (Gippsland), Bishop Richard Treloar, is an openly pro-LGBT, pro-same-sex-union advocate. Also, recently, at the synod of Australia, the bishops met and voted in opposition to the clergy and laymen, to bless same-sex-unions. A splinter group of conservative Anglicans recently started their own diocese (with the support of GAFCON) called the "Diocese of The Southern Cross", but they're way on the other side of the country. I was born in to an atheist (one wiccan and one agnostic / lapsed catholic) household, but somehow by the Grace of God, was baptised Anglican in my infancy. After marriage and raising my own family, I came to know God, and have been an avid (albeit amateur) evangelist in every thing that I do, since. Having moved a few times, we attended a few different Anglican parishes and churches, but now have settled in Drouin, and I find myself at odds with the church community and leadership here in this diocese. We recently had an event where we were given paper hands to write a message on about what church means to us, and put up on the wall, and let's just say, the notes on those bits of paper read more like something I'd see outside of the pro-socialist Trade's Hall building in Melbourne city. A disturbing majority of the notes said stuff like "Don't listen to other people, be who you want to be", "You are the best person to tell you who you are", etc.. A few of them were openly talking about encouraging homosexuals in to the communion and "Love is Love" was even up there, in rainbow colours. I feel ashamed that this is the community that the Anglicans out here in the country have fostered, and I honestly don't want to be a part of it. I've given consideration to joining the local Presbetarian church, though trends in the USA seem to show them also "going woke" over there, so I don't know. How do I reconcile my knowledge of scripture and biblical truths, with the sullying of the rare few church communities that still exist outside of the major capital cities in Australia? I can't in good faith say to a gay person that I don't think their lifestyle choice is sinful, just as I couldn't say to a serial killer with a straight face that the bible says God accepts their desire to murder people and that they'll get in heaven no matter what they do. I can't tell people that Jesus died for us and paid our wages of death for sin, without also accepting that we ARE sinners and that we DO have sins to repent from. Asking for help and intercessory prayer from my fellow Anglicans here. I've been, and will continue to, also pray directly to God for help with this. I don't know how to discuss this with the fellow Anglicans in Gippsland, as other than the local youth pastor, every other member of the congregation was born before WW2, and has been attending the CoE services for 80 years out of habit, completely forgetting anything about evangelism or talking to people from outside of their faith groups.
